Followers of Christ should follow Christ . . . and His example.
Have you ever heard a sermon that sounded something like this? "If you are a child of God, you are either in the middle of a storm, coming out of a storm, or going into a storm." Ironically, the example we are given in the Bible is of Jesus resting during the storm and awaking only to silence the storm. He said, 'Peace, be still.' He did not fear the storm, worry about the storm, or curse the storm. He spoke to the storm, and the storm responded in obedience to His words and to His will. That is our example. When we follow His example, we should also get His results.
Your life should not be defined by the storm, because the storm is subject to you and your authority through Christ Jesus. In The Anointing of Ease, author V.K. Fields shares how to reclaim God's original intent for your life of ease through His blessings and promises.
In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And on the seventh day God ended his work, which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made (paraphrase of Genesis 1).
In the beginning, God created a perfect world. In that perfect world, he placed people and gifted them with free will, which has choices . . . that can result in not-so-perfect consequences. A good man who makes a bad choice will still encounter and endure the negative consequences of that choice.
God's original plan and intent for mankind was to live an unburdened life with an easy yoke. The redemptive sacrifice of Christ on the Cross once again has placed that divinely orchestrated and intended life of ease within reach for those who will reclaim it.

When it comes to The Anointing of Ease, to know it is to live it. And to live it is to love it. What good does it do to study God's Word, attend church regularly, fast and pray, tithe and give generously, and then live outside of God's stated promises? If you are living a tormented, broken life of distress and unrest, then you are living beneath your God-given privilege and outside of His stated promises for provision. Once you internalize the peace and ease of God's original plan, never again will you tolerate the chaos, unrest, and "dis"-ease that have been manufactured and dispatched to disrupt your life and to destroy your destiny.
